How To Not Get Sick
Things you can do to ward off a cold or lessen its effects.

Take 5 grams of powdered vitamin C. Mix a heaping teaspoon of crystalized vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in a large glass with 1/4 teaspoon of baking soda and a tablespoon of honey or sugar syrup. Add a small amount of tasty liquid. Stir. Wait until it froths up and then goes back down again to mostly liquid. Drink it with a small glass of tasty liquid nearby as it will still taste terrible and you will want to wash the taste away.

Alkalyze your body. This means taking lot of minerals. Baking soda is mostly carbon and sodium. It is a good alkalyzer in the short term, although you would need to add other full array minerals in the long term. Edible clay is a good source of mixed, full-array minerals. "A lot" means taking them by the tablespoonful, not by the gram.

Take a large, time-released vitamin C tablet every hour.

Make a poultice of French green clay and hot water and put it on your neck and behind your ears as close to where you feel any scratchiness indicating a cold is coming on.

Drink lots of water. Drink at least an ounce of water for every pound of body weight per day when you are coming down with a cold, for example, if you weigh 128 pounds, you would drink 128 ounces of water or two gallons. 160 pounds, you would drink 2 1/2 gallons. Put large soda pop bottles of water by your bed so you can continue drinking as much water as you can during the night -- drink as much as you can every time you wake up.

Sleep more when you have a cold coming on, preferably in a room as dark as you can get it, or put face masks or other clothing over your eyes if you cannot completely blacken the room..

Put a drop of 3% hydrogen peroxide in each ear and let it drip down, holding head sideways or lying on your side. It will fizz, indicating it is meeting and killing bacteria. Hydrogen peroxide contains oxygen and oxygen is poisonous to the bacteria (anaerobe) that make us sick. Hydrogen peroxide can be bought at any pharmacy or drug store but you may have to ask for it in some places where it is not sold over the counter in plain sight.

Keep warm and breathe fresh air. If you can stay warm enough with heating pads, blankets etc. open a window in your bedroom to get fresh air while sleeping. Sleep outside in a tent if it's warm enough. Wear a hat, scarf and mittens or gloves while sleeping if necessary. Wear extra clothes during the day or better yet, stay in bed, keeping warm, while drinking your extra gallon of water.

Practice jala neti (saline nasal irrigation) every four hours when you feel a cold coming on.

Take several antibiotics [see below], regardless of whether conventional medicine says it is caused by a virus or bacteria.

Take a few drops of oil or oregano, or put some on your wrist and rub in or put a drop in each nostril.

Keep your ears covered to keep out germs that may cause colds. (You can do this all the time especially in cold and flu season, and not wait until you feel a cold coming on.) Wear a hat and scarf, or make yourself a balaclava.

Besides these things you can add to your routine when you think  you might be coming down with a cold, you should also be maintaining a strong immune system by eating a healthy diet all the time. A few particular things to remember to include are bone broth, garlic, minerals, probiotics and plenty of water.

Fish Antibiotics

In the US, antibiotics can be purchased in some large pet shops in the aquarium department. You have to read the fine print on the back of the boxes, but some of the pills for water treatment are plain penicillin, erythromycin or tetracycline. They are made in the same plants that make human abx and are chemically identical. This is provided for informational purposes only, and does not constitute a recommendation that you should take antibiotics not labelled for human use. disclaimer
Questioning The Narrative About Antibiotics)

After finishing any kind of antibiotics, it is helpful to take probiotics to replenish the gut. This can be from foods such as yogurt, kefir, cultured cream, raw sauerkraut, lacto-fermented sodas or nutritional supplements. Probiotic nutritional supplements can be found in health food stores or ordered online from Soil-Based Organisms

  It's not that you wear cotton rags
  Or clothes of finest silk,            
  It's cause you got e. coli bug     
  From drinking past'rized milk.    
--after an Irish children's rhyme. Enterobacteria ("e. coli") are kept in check by lactobacilli, a probiotic found in raw milk. You may not be able to avoid e.coli, but you can be sure to have plenty of lactobacilli around to knock them out by drinking raw milk or culturing pasteurized milk to to restore the living microbes killed by pasteurization.
